About this opportunity

The RISE Africa 2024 Action Festival is calling on all advocates, change-makers, innovators and artists working towards more dignified, equitable, sustainable and resilient African futures to enter their annual RISE Africa Photography Competition! 

The RISE Africa Annual Photography  Competition encourages imaginative and novel thinking to collectively envision the futures of African cities. It aims to promote citizen photography and grassroots storytelling, as well as curated photo-journalism, as a way to excite and encourage citizens and decision makers about their homes. The resulting photography entries will be used to elicit ideas from city officials, urbanists, decision-makers, private sector and civil society who will explore and engage with the exhibition through a number of workshops. These annual showcases intend to produce realistic, novel and positive demonstrations of Africa which are curated from within.
